Nonprofits at 2:00

Are nonprofit amalgamations moving from the margins to the mainstream?

Date: Thursday, May 13, 2021, 2:00 – 3:30pm
Location: Online

At this gathering, James Stauch will discuss a framework for nonprofit mergers produced by MRU’s Institute for Community Prosperity, based on a chronicle of the recent Trellis merger. He will moderate a panel discussion with local nonprofits who have recently gone through an amalgamation, as well as perspectives from a board volunteer, funder and capacity builder, reflecting on mergers and amalgamations in the sector.

The panel will explore such topics as what kinds of conditions need to be present for mergers to succeed, the roles of boards, funders, and consultants—and the prospects for a widespread wave of nonprofit mergers in the post-COVID era.
